Happy Fall!

I can't believe it was a year ago I worked on this wedding with Emarie.  Amy + Naveen's school-themed fall wedding at Carneros Inn was such a fun projects.  One of my favorite DIY's was the apple chair garland!  I just used some medium weight wire and literally threaded small apples to create a garland to hang on the back of a chair.  Though the apples were real and it wouldn't keep for long, you could do this on a mantle for a holiday or festive occasion, or use faux fruit for a more permanent decoration (that will last through Christmas!). 502 Bad Gateway
